Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly identified Morocco international Yacine Bammou as their ideal replacement for Benik Afobe, according to Talksport.

The Championship side, who sold their top goalscorer for a reported £10m to Premier League side AFC Bournemouth last week, want the Nantes hitman to replace the ex-Arsenal forward at Molineux this month.

The 24-year-old, who has three international caps to his name, has scored four league goals in 18 apearances for the Ligue 1 outfit this season.

Kenny Jackett’s side, who currently sit tenth in the league standings, are plotting a January move for the Paris-born Moroccan who is also named as the ‘Cinderella Man of French football’.

His nickname follows on from his remarkable journey into professional football after working for Paris Saint-Germain in their club shop just three years ago.
